- how to turn on scp compatibility mode ?

I'm working in a PC running RH9 with openssh-3.5p1-6 installed. When I
try to connect to a Compaq Tru64 UNIX with sshd2 installed through
'ssh' it is ok.
But if I try scp, I get the following:
warning: Executing scp1 compatibility.
Executing ssh1 in compatibility mode failed.
I searched the net and discovered that this problem is quite common,
but probably because of my lack of experience, I could not understand
how to solve it. I did understand that I have to, somehow, turn on the
scp1 compatibility in my Linux, but I don't have a clue about how to
Can anyone tell me how to do that?
Thanks a lot
p.s. by the way, when I try to use sftp, any command shows the message
¨Server version does not support lstat operation¨, but I can transfer
files IF they are not big: if they are big, the transfer never ends.
This is a secondary problem, but if anyone have a suggestion also...

Re: how to turn on scp compatibility mode ?
Download OpenSSH (or one of the original SSH1 releases, eg ssh-1.2.33).
Unpack the archive, build and copy scp to, eg, /usr/local/bin/scp1.
$ gzip -dc openssh-3.8p1.tar.gz | tar xf -
$ cd openssh-3.8p1
$ ./configure && make
$ su root
# cp scp /usr/local/bin/scp1

Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
